    One of my friends posted today that she's giving away two bunnies, but they're netherland dwarf/hotentot mixes. Not even big enough for a sandwich. :(

    So weird about all the bunnies! I'm 99.9% sure I'm getting a bunny for Christmas. Bunnies everywhere!

    No idea why bunnies are so popular. Worst pet I ever had. From the projectile nuclear waste pee to the claws of death. Shed worse than Zander. Worst pet ever.

    Good news is that despite the creepy circumstances, I do have Zander's food and all is well. And this isn't necessarily BAD news, at least not for me, but the FedEx Terminal people won't answer my calls. So it's entirely possible they are still looking for this thing. And I want to sleep.

    Jin left today. All the sleep.

    Aww!! I love them! They will kick and scratch if they aren't used to being handled (preferably from a young age) but when tame, they are super sweet!

    I loved my rabbit, too. He was supposedly a dwarf but there was nothing dwarf about him lol. His name was Toby and he lived with my guinea pig. when the GP died Toby got really depressed and wouldn't eat, started losing weight and losing his hair... like I mean big bald spots. It was so sad. Then one day while he was out hopping about he met our very OLD cat and they became friends. it was the strangest relationship ever hahaha but they would play 'tag". Toby would come sit by my chair and Cleo (the cat) would sneak up and pat him on the butt and Toby would spin around and chase her. Cleo would run and jump up onto the second step knowing Toby couldn't climb the stairs. Eventually Toby would give up and come back to me and they would start the whole thing over again LOL. his hair started to grow back and he started eating and gaining weight again :)

    although I think the BEST pet is a guinea pig but Rabbits are pretty awesome lol

    Hit the gym last night after a couple weeks off because of dealing with house stuff and worked really hard. This morning my legs aren't exactly sore, but they are really fatigued. This time of year (half-marathon training season) I get into this mode anyway, where my legs always feel like this. Not quite sore, just tired. I call it perma-fatigue.
    You might be wondering why this is good news but it just is. Take my word for it. It's good news.

    Also, my trainer gave me permission last night to eat whatever I want on Thanksgiving... whatever. I. want. Pie. Pie pie pie.
    I already know that my tolerance for sugar is REALLY low these days (after the cotton candy, um, "occurrence" at the wedding expo) and I also know that if I eat too much wheat now (I can do a very small amount, like a couple pretzels) or any kind of processed food, which I think my grandma uses a lot of pre-made stuff to cut down on time these days, it makes me really really sick...
    I'm still considering pecan pie. Like really considering it. Like my eyes are kinda big right now.
    I HAVE PERMISSION.

    Thats why we picked a litter that was as young as these guys are because I want them used to being handled and right now they LOVE to snuggle <3

    REW's creep me out too but Jeremy fell in love with him and the guy we got them from said he/she kept getting passed up :(.

    Even though terrible things happened today. I am determined and focused to get my sh!t together. It is sad that what happened today was my eye opener, but at least it opened my eyes. It made me realize I can't keep doing what I've been doing. It made me realize I need to try 100 times harder. It made me realize that I can't fix everything and be a door mat to people who don't care nor want help.
    So its my time. And I am going to do everything possible so I can become a better person and do right by me.

    oh yah.. I mean, it lasts much longer in the base with water than it does being tied up outside.

    ETA: ok, maybe not legit tomorrow. Just found out we don't have a base. :lol-sign:
